What not to eat before a run

I have made of list of things I need to remember not to eat before I go on a run. Why these things? Because it is no fun burping and tasting the following food items when I am running, in my opinion.

  1. Peanut butter
  2. Bacon
  3. Anything with onions
  4. Chili (I made the BEST homemade chili, but it was a stupid choice to eat it before a run.)
  5. Tuna. I eat my tuna with lime juice and Sriracha. Spicy burning burps suck.

Short list, but those are all the things I’ve eaten so far that I will not eat again before a run.

Today is another beautiful day in Sacramento. I ran the furthest distance since the CIM today! Yay me! Still not very far, and I would have gone further today but I had to pee really bad. Damn bladder.

Run – 6.95 miles by haleymg at Garmin Connect – Details.

I found this great picture on Pinterest (loooove you Pinterest!) This is soooo me! 🙂 Like I’ve said before though, I love running & races because they are always for a great cause. My next race is just under a month, but it can’t come soon enough. I need to race!


On another note, if you’ve read my blog you know I love animals. This is  my dog (our family dog) Chewy. We’ve had her for 11 years and love her so much! She is having surgery today to remove a tumor. It has been biopsied before and luckily it is a type of cancer that is usually only locally invasive and she should do well after surgery. Please think positive, good thoughts for her. She really is a special dog.


I love Chew Flowers!


Hope everyone has a great week!

  1. Okay, another thing you shouldn’t eat before running is eggs. Yuck.

    Chewy is cutie! I love the older pooches–their graying muzzles and faces gives them such an air of dignity and grace. I hope she has a speedy and uneventful recovery!

  2. it was the same for me when i did long mountain bike rides or races. anything with chilies, bell peps or onions are NOT good. jalapenos take on a whole new life. and don’t even think of chili. the ONLY time i did that, my riding partners made me ride at the back of the pack. you can be a very lonely rider after eating chili the night before.
    by the way Chew says thanks to everyone, she seems much better than last night. she was glad to have the e collar taken off. can’t wait to get her back to hiking the lake trail.
